This translation has been automatically generated and has not been verified for accuracy.The Supreme Court of Canada has ended the years-long legal battle over the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion byfrom the Squamish Nation, Tsleil-Waututh Nation, the Ts’elxweyeqw Tribes and Coldwater Indian Band.

First approved in 2016, the TMX project seeks to carry more oil to the Pacific for the Asian market and diversify Canada’s oil exports away from just the United States. However, it raised significant concerns about the environmental effects for First Nations, whose territories the expanded pipeline would go through, and on marine life, including the highly endangered Southern Resident killer whales, off the B.C. coast.

In June, 2019, the federal government once again approved the project after additional consultation with the affected communities, but First Nations appealed the decision. The Federal Court of Appeal then ruled that the approval would stand, leading the First Nations to the now-failed appeal to the Supreme Court.

The Supreme Court has also said that, as an interprovincial project, TMX is under federal jurisdiction so the B.C. government has no authority to regulate what could flow through the pipeline.The U.S. Senate unanimously voted towho implement the new national security law, following a similar decision by the U.S. House of Representatives. The White House has yet to comment on whether it will sign the act into law, but Vice-President Mike Pence has criticized China’s national security law.

China responded that it would resist the sanctions, telling the U.S. to stay out of Hong Kong affairs.Story continues below advertisement
